Geoff was invaluable in getting us started on Scrum, and more importantly, following through and really embedding it into the organisation. He not only speeded up the adoption process but we probably would have faltered, and even failed, many times without Geoff's support. I rate Geoff very highly.Head of Development

Teams who are new to Scrum can find it daunting. They typically take 3-6 months to get into a rhythm and truly internalise the required disciplines of a new way of working. An experienced coach can reduce this time and increase the productivity of your teams. Past experience shows that companies have a much greater success rate if they engage an experienced coach to guide a team getting started and, later on in their project, gather learning points and help them move forward.
Geoff is the UK's first Certified Scrum Coach, is Coach-U qualified and also has a diploma in Performance Coaching (Business). He has helped teams work out how to deal with the challenges that are traditionally seen as barriers to adopting an agile approach such as distributed teams, offshoring, COTS packages, scaled projects, fixed price contracts and others.
This can be anything from one-day engagements to facilitating Sprint Planning or retrospective sessions through to organisational change consultancy. In all situations my primary aim is to help nurture internal agile coaches so that the ongoing transformation is self-sufficient, increasing the chances of success and reducing the reliance on external coaches
